Controversy! Official scorecards for Georges St. Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks

Take a look at the controversial scorecards for Georges St. Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks...

Tonight (Sat. Nov. 16, 2013) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, Georges St-Pierre successfully defended his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight title against Johny Hendricks in the main event of UFC 167.

The fight without question was the toughest of St. Pierre's career as Hendricks took the fight to the champion from the opening bell, putting an absolute beating on "Rush". To the outside observer, it looked like Hendricks was well on his way to becoming the new Welterweight champion as he landed hard punches and busted up St. Pierre's face.

St. Pierre's remained competitive and was able to take the two-time NCAA D1 champion down to the mat on several occasions, but failed to land any significant strikes with the advantageous position. Before the scores were read, Hendricks' camp looked absolutely sure that they were able to dethrone the champ.

Even UFC veterans believed that Hendricks would be crowned the new champ.

But then UFC Ring Announcer Bruce Buffer announced that it was St. Pierre who took a controversial split decision (scorecard here). With the win, GSP becomes the winningest fighter in UFC history. He announced a semi-retirement in his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan.

Remember, too, that our round-by-round UFC 167 results of the under card fights on Facebook/FOX Sports 1 will begin to flow around 6:30 p.m. ET later this evening and run right on through to our main card PPV coverage, which is set to start at 10 p.m. ET.
